You are required to complete some work before attending the Core 1 and Capstone 1 workshops and will receive access to the module materials one-to-three business days before the module starts. Access to content for other modules is typically available one business day before the module starts.  

 Bring the following to workshop sessions:

Select your workshop city when registering for a module during the module registration period. If you register after the registration period closes, you will be required to pay a waitlist fee and select your top three locations. You will be placed in a location based on availability. 

Location availability depends on candidate registrations and locations without enough candidates may be cancelled. After the registration period closes, CPAWSB will offer candidates in cancelled locations alternative options.  

Generally, CPA PEP workshop venues are post-secondary institutions or hotel conference centres. The specific locations are confirmed two weeks before the workshop when the workshop locations are posted on the CPAWSB website. You require permission from CPAWSB to attend a workshop in another location.  

If you need to participate in workshops in other regions (Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Canada), contact at least three weeks before the scheduled workshop date.
